ATP, Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration Unit



Are you teaching basic cellular processes like photosynthesis and cellular respiration? Need a good way to explain ATP and energy? This product is for you! Save yourself lots of time (and your own ATP) and make creating your biology lesson plans a breeze!

Photosynthesis and cellular respiration are some of the most difficult topics to teach in a Biology or Life Science course. This bundle has been recently updated to include even more engaging resources that keep your students interested and help make teaching this unit a snap!

Included in this bundle:

  • An EDITABLE 39-slide colorful and engaging PowerPoint presentation
  • 3 pages of Cornell Guided Notes that coincide with PowerPoint
    • Cellular Energy: ATP Notes
    • Cellular Energy: Photosynthesis Notes
    • Cellular Energy: Respiration Notes
  • 2 interactive pages for a biology notebook
    • Light reactions & Dark reactions foldable
    • Aerobic respiration steps flow chart
  • Cellular Respiration Lab-  “Barf Bags” to demonstrate alcoholic fermentation
  • Stomata Photosynthesis Activity to see structures involved in photosynthesis – Students will use a simple procedure & a compound microscope to observe the stoma and guard cells
  • stations or centers for extending thinking with coinciding student worksheet:
    • Interpret a graph on photosynthesis and light’s impact on O2 production
    • Online review quiz on photosynthesis and cellular respiration
    • Build an ATP molecule and consider a real-life application
    • Draw respiration and photosynthesis processes in nature
    • Sort organisms based on which of the processes they use
    • Extend knowledge by learning about how some plants reduce water loss in hot climates
  • 28 Photosynthesis & Cellular Respiration Task Cards for practice or assessment
  • An EDITABLE test in 2 different versions
  • Two extra extension pages on photosynthesis with answer keys


Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration Topics included:

  • ADP and ATP
  • Energy
  • Photosynthesis
  • Light Reactions (Light-dependent reactions)
  • Dark Reactions/ Calvin Cycle (Light-independent reactions)
  • Cellular Respiration
  • Glycolysis
  • Krebs Cycle/ Citric Acid Cycle
  • Electron Transport Chain
  • Lactic acid fermentation and alcoholic fermentation
  • C4 and CAM Photosynthesis
